Police: Woman Assaulted on W & OD Trail

Fairfax County Police seeking suspect in Tuesday assault and abduction incident on Reston/Herndon border.

Fairfax County Police are looking for clues in an alleged abduction and assault Tuesday on the W & OD Trail on the Reston/Herndon border.

A 31-year-old woman told police she was attacked around 7 p.m. while walking along the W & OD Trail.

The woman entered the trail off of Reston Avenue and was near the overpass for Herndon Parkway when she noticed a man following her. Near Sunset Hills Road and the  the woman was dragged off of the path into a wooded area, police public information officer Don Gotthardt said.

The victim struggled with her attacker, who eventually fled north onto a gravel horse trail. The victim did not require medical attention, police said.

Police describe the suspect as heavyset, about 25 years old. He was clean shaven and he had short, black hair. He was wearing glasses, a dark jacket and dark jeans.

Police urge anyone planning to walk along more secluded trails, away from common view, to consider walking with a friend. Do not wear ear buds or earphones, be aware of your surroundings, and tell someone where you are going before you leave.

If the police themselves are refusing to release his race, they too are part of the political agenda to drive a false narrative and hide the facts. Not long ago, the Herndon police actually featured the Orwellian statement on their website that "diversity" is a "superior attribute of an individual" when seeking employment with the Herndon police department. Finally, after being aware of such disgustingly leftist, anti-white male language promulgated on the part of the Town of Herndon, I attended a Herndon town council candidates meet-and-greet, and challenged all present to defend the website's anti-white agenda. It was a highly contentious encounter, but guess what? Within mere days, the entire web page had been re-written, without any of the anti-white language. The moral of the story: Speak up, white males! You must speak up and stop this vendetta against you everywhere!

Louisa, what does your perceived history of the U.S. have to do with catching the predator that attacked the woman on the WO&D? Of course evil people come in all flavors, no-one has lock on that quality. There is not one race on this earth that can claim to have clean hands. It doesn't take more than a cursory look in all directions to prove that point. Whomever attacked the woman, whatever race, needs to be taken off the streets.

Louisa, the suspect's other identifiers in this case are listed. Furthermore, a suspect can change their clothing, their hair and hair color, their weight, facial hair, etc., but cannot change their race, so it is a key identifier. The omission here is blatantly political, as is so much of the reporting and outright deception practiced by government and media outlets today. Crucial aspects of the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case have repeatedly been shown to have been shamelessly manipulated by dishonest, disgraceful media such as NBC and ABC, with audio, video, and still photos intentionally edited and distorted to frame Zimmerman. This kind of garbage, the same kind of Mike Nifong chicanery that got the Duke LaCrosse team railroaded until the lies of the prosecution and other parties were exposed, is rampant in our PC society. The rare event of actual white-on-black violence is pounced upon by rabid media and leftist government agencies such as Eric Holder's corrupt racist regime, the Dept. of Black Panthers, and the flames are fanned with agenda-driven treachery until the facts finally surface. During one recent year, not a single case of a white male raping a black female was recorded in the FBI's entire national database of statistics, yet of course black males raped white females by the thousands and thousands.

Louisa, white people are the smallest demographic in the world, a global minority, and have been enslaved the most throughout history--the word "slave" comes from the same word referring to whites of the Southeastern European region, Slavics. Black Muslims in Northern Africa held upwards of a million captured whites as slaves during the same period that Africans were held by whites here in America; entire villages and areas along the European coast of the Mediterranean were deserted for decades because of plundering and slaving raids conducted by the Barbary corsairs. Learn some history other than the PC falsehoods taught in the public schools and universities. America's history is one of whites actually rising up against tyranny, of breaking the eons-old paradigm of slavery and oppression of one group by another. Hundreds of thousands of white men died to END slavery in this hemisphere. The experience of whites enslaving blacks here on this continent is relatively brief, in terms of the overall span of history. Blacks here now are better off than blacks anywhere on the planet, many of whom are dying to get here to enjoy the comparative good life that whites have legislated, with over 50 years of affirmative action, welfare, contract set-asides, housing and medical upon demand, etc., yet blacks are taught by people like you to hate whites, to hate America, and to attack and murder and rape and loot and rob by the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Ice-T, and the rest...

In the overall span of history up to the present, slavery and oppression has most definitely NOT been an especially peculiar feature of whites as regards other races; moreover, it has really just been mainly the way of the world until Christian whites led the way to change the paradigm and put in place a culture of civilization that rejects such old ways. Based on the state of race relations in America now, and based on the economic devastation and mayhem wrought by decades of black violence, depravity, and abuse of Lyndon johnson's "Great Society" runaway welfare train wreck of trillions of dollars down the hole, I'd say it's blacks who owe whites reparations!
